Accelerating Investment & Innovation Summit

 

 

 

 

 

Thursday 23rd September 2021, 09:30-16:30

On a mission to boost investment in innovation for the North East!

As part of our work to grow the region’s investment ecosystem, we’ve partnered with the British Business Bank to deliver the Accelerating Investment and Innovation Summit for a second year.

This year’s event will take place online and focus on building connectivity between the region’s innovative businesses and the investor community.

The North continues to produce a growing number of innovative businesses, but research shows the innovation funding gap remains an issue.

The online event is FREE to attend and is aimed at anyone with an interest in the innovation funding landscape, including Innovative SMEs seeking access to finance support.

What will the day include?

The Summit theme is ‘Building Connectivity’ with a focus on further developing the Investment and Innovation landscape across the North.

We’re bringing back some core panel discussions to look at how far we’ve come in the last 12 months and ramped up the opportunity for delegates to drive change and learn from each other with an afternoon of interactive sessions.

  • Hear from the UK’s leading economists, investment analysts, investors, fund managers and policy makers.
  • Gain the latest insight on future trends and market insights.
  • Join the discussion on how we can all drive diversity across the investment landscape.
  • Meet other investors and build new investor syndicates.
  • Network with SMEs seeking finance.
  • Join our interactive session tackling the challenge of building connectivity in the regions.
